In her final book, Nora Ephron reflects on life, growing older, and everything she will and won’t miss. Filled with Nora’s trademark wit, wisdom and warmth.
* No one actually likes to admit they’re old. The most they will cop to is that they’re older. Or oldish.
* Freedom of the press belongs to the man who owns one.
* I have been forgetting things for years-at least since I was in my thirties. I know this because I wrote something about it at the time. I have proof. Of course, I can’t remember exactly where I wrote about it, or when, but I could probably hunt it up if I had to.

Man at the Helm – A wildly comic novel about an attractive divorcée in an English village in the 1970s – Only 99p 0 comments

Not long after her parents’ separation, heralded by an awkward scene involving a wet Daily Telegraph and a pan of cold eggs, nine-year-old Lizzie Vogel, her sister and little brother and their now divorcée mother are packed off to a small, slightly hostile village in the English countryside. Their mother is all alone, only thirty-one years of age, with three young children and a Labrador. It is no wonder, when you put it like that, that she becomes a menace and a drunk. And a playwright.
Worried about the bad playwriting – though more about becoming wards of court and being sent to the infamous Crescent Home for Children – Lizzie and her sister decide to contact, by letter, suitable men in the area. In order to stave off the local social worker they urgently need to find a new Man at the Helm.
